Jay has enjoyed the friendship of his neighbor and the lunches at Red Lobster. How many times we chatted about pudding and cars and home repairs! Ah, the memories of him replacing fence boards and fixing his roof still in his 80's are priceless! Such a sweetheart will always be in our hearts. May he enjoy forever respite with your sweet loving mother and his siblings and family in a greater place of peace. Arun and Neha Mamtani , September 1, 2016
